You can see here a larger,sharper and more detailed version of the photo.

From Aegina city begins the onshore road that leads south, towards the cove of Marathona.
Three kilometers after the cove of Marathona, the road ends to the traditional fishing village of Perdika, which it is only 9 kilometers from the port of Aegina.

Perdika is an old traditional settlement, built around the port. In the old times its townsfolk were occupied exclusively with fishing.
Main characteristic of the settlement of Perdika is the small houses with their yards to connect with each other.
The one side of Perdika is cobbled-paved, above the sea.

To the pedestrian precinct there are tavernas famous for their fresh fish, ouzeri, bar and coffee shops.
The pedestrian precinct continues with benches between trees, where anyone can admire the sunset, watching the sun vanishing in to the sea.

Hello Danos,
This is a superb composition, one of those photos that make me think of a painting. There are many fine nuances of the sky and the clouds, and the combination of dark clouds, dark hills and reflections have a very dramatic effect. The boats create a fine contrast and provide interesting focal points, but this would have been a fine photo even if the view had been totally empty.
Kind regards,

Hello Danos ,
Fantastic dramatic light on the harbour . Berautiful moutains in the BG and impressive cloudy sky .

Hi Danos!

Very beautiful momento of light, sun rays coming...Good panorama composition and excellent light management, wáter light reflections are great !!

Have a nice day...


Kalispera Danos,
Golden afternoon light shed over the water surface, created a marvelous effect on photo.
F14 number looks to intensify this effect, to my humble opinion - but result is beautiful.
My best regards,

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
πολύ ωραία, ατμοσφαιρική σκηνή, τα σύννεφα, το φως και τα χρώματα της δίνουν μια ιδιαιτερότητα και πολύ μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον. Μου αρέσει πολύ η απλότητα, η ισορροπία και η ηρεμία της σύνθεσής σου. Φαίνεται ότι το μόνο που κινείται μέσα σ' αυτό το τοπίο είναι τα σύννεφα και το φως. Θαυμάσιες οι αντανακλάσεις στη θάλασσα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

Hello Danos, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting composition with the sunset in the harbor, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, beautiful light, color and quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Hi dear Danos

Ya this is your world! Greaty nostalgic mood is so well presented by your high tech. and inspirations.
So stunning and tranqulized image in a perect and tight framework at all. So sharp and clear presentation as usual.

All the best, Takero

Hi Danos,
This is a fantastic view and photo. I actually watch the movie 300 Rise of an empire over the weekend and this looks so much like one of those epic, surreal and magnificent moments from such a film. The light is like from the heavens itself,and the boats have still retained a great level of light to bring out their details in the view. Brilliant image.
Best wishes

Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Une image de toute beauté avec cette lumière presque divine.
Merveilleuse composition.

Love you compo, the light, the sky.
The sun on the left boat springs out.

Dobro vece.
Lep pogled i trenutak, interesantan i dobar tekst ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazani ribarski camci i oblaci koji dolaze sa kisom.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lep zalazak sunca.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje.

Hola Danos

Golden light present in your last captures creates a magical ambiance because colors and reflections
Like the line of ships separating sea and mountains at the back, they add a touch of life
Congrats, enjoy watching

a marvelous and strange effect of light here. excellent use of the boats and the landscape. congratulations. it is a beautiful work.



Hi Danos,
quite a spectacular photo! I like very much the difficult light which you have turned to your advantage: The clouds so dark and yet some warm sun rays are passing through and the boats seem to be touched a bit with this warm light too. Beautiful place the mountains make a nice curve. The lamps add an elegant touch.
Excellent work,

Hello Danos,

A very quiet picture with the boats and the mountain in background.
Also a nice cloudy sky.
What a lovely composition, and fantastic colours.
A nice nature picture too.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Danos,

The distance between the boats and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the boats and of the mountains. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.

dear friend danos very very beautiful picture with this great sunset in this very little port
i licke very much this dark sky and the little boat for fisching
great composition dear friend

Hello Danos,

This is a wonderfully atmospheric shot!
The boats are huddled together as if sheltering from the oncoming black clouds but the whole is relieved by the rays of sun, filtering through the clouds, to illuminate the sea with rainbow coloured shafts.

Thank you for sharing this,
Bev :-)

Hi Danos

Well chosen POV makes the photo more effective. Warm lights and sun beam comes trough the clouds make your scene very attractive. Well exposed one too. TFS. GREETINGS, Salih.

Hi Danos.
I'm having problems with my computer these days, I'm with a laptop.
This wonderful and spectacular sunset, a beautiful sky with those pink tones bordering the cloud so threatening, the profile of the coast and the beautiful alignment of fishing boats, creating an image of incomparable beauty.
Very good picture quality, as well as the magnificent colorful and good brightness.
I wish you a good day.
Best wishes.

Hi Danos
As always a well composed and captured low light shot, beautiful splash of colours and lots of details to look at without being distracting. The dramatic clouds & delicious shimmering reflections are particularly very inviting yet a beautifully atmospheric and calming setting so very well registered. Splendid shot, Congrats
Best regards

Salam dear Danos,

Once agian we see a very beautiful poster from Aegina island but with different idea,

specially the rays of the Sun passing between the clouds is really attractive for me,

and the boats add more beauty to the scene,

very nice composition and Thanks!

Best Regards,***

Hi Danos
a fine atmospheric scene.
looks like there's a storm bruing!
love how the boats seem to be in succession compared to size.

nice to have the bg mountains too.
excellent post for your gallery

Excellent, beautiful photo arrangement. The sunset light is superb and the reflections beautiful. I like it.
Very well done.
p.s. I'm going back on coming Tuesday (for one month).

dramatic clouds, wonderful natural colors and I like a lot of light. only one word, superb.
Have a nice weekend.

Hi Danos!
Very beautiful picture!
Special regards to the exposure, colors, horizontal format and compositon!
TFS - congrats,

Hello Danos,

The cloud formation looks like having been cut by the sharp edges of the mountain. The contrast btween the orange and gray tones are nice to see and the reflections on the water add to the composition.

Best regards

Geia sou Danos
It appears as you were standing on the opposite coastline at the most-opportune moment the capture this natural DRAMA in the skies, conveyed by the paradoxical juxtaposition of subtle sunset colors to the threatening black clouds endangering the lovely view of moored boats!
Many compliments for this 'suspense drama'!

Hi Danos,
wow..a very dramatic scene. The light is fantastic and create a feeling of an painting. The fishingboats in the foreground are very charming and represents a common view in Greece. Well done!

Have a nice evening/

Hi Danos,

Good pov and good frame to show a row of parking boats at the harbor, beautiful boats that completed with shed, nice mountain as background too, impressive sunset view in a cloudy evening, distinct photo, thanks for sharing.


Hi Danos,
Bulutlar ve denizdeki yansımalar çok güzel.
Işık iyi kullanılmış.
Renkler pastel.
Tebrik ediyorum.

Hello Danos,

Nice repetition of the boats with good sharpness and excellent lighting with the sunbeams breaking through the clouds. Splendid warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue grey. I like the rippling sheen of silver on the water surface at left. Nice impressionist reflections. Tfs.

Olá Danos,
Uma vista fantástica com excelentes luzes e cores e com uma boa composição

Hello Danos,
A kind of weather we do not immediately associate with Greece.
It looks cold and the sky is certainly threatening.
Beautiful sunbeams.
A very atmospheric shot.

The light in the sky is beautiful and how the same is reflected on the waters. You have brought out the details on the fishing boats well. I also like the glistening patch of water in the BG.

εδώ ο φωτισμός και τα χρώματα κάνουν την διαφορά,
υπέροχη λήψη!

I love the light here... Not to mention the rays that are coming from behind the clouds... And their reflection on the water...
Stormy and calm at the same time...

Hello Danos,
This is a terrific photo, I like the light shining at the edges of the clouds and reflecting off the water.
